Tools for Assembling Paper Mini’s Kit:

  • Metal straight-edge (ruler). Make fold lines by pressing against edge of the ruler.
  • White craft glue that is a “quick grab” “clear dry” type of glue.
  • Tweezers, cotton tipped swab, small artist brush, aluminum foil to squeeze work glue onto.
  • A true cutting mat
  • A thin long needle to wrap cigar.
  • Check the Pencil tutorial to see how to wrap the cigars.

Assembly Instructions
1. Fold box at all fold lines . You will see shape of miniature appear when folds are in place.

2. Glue tabs of display box to interior of box sides. Then fold down edge-lining for sides and glue into place.

3. Fold lid’s attached lining and glue into place.

4. Form box shape with false bottom piece and fit into box.

Winding Cigars:

5. See the Pencil tutorial listed above. Fold the wide end of the cigar at the dotted line. This helps you to roll/wind the cigar.

6. Next roll the cigar as tightly as you possibly can, Making sure that both ends taper to the same degree.

7. Glue end of cigar and hold until dry. If white ends show, use a brown felt tip pen or brown paint to touch-up the ends.
